Subject: My last show..till Further!
Last Dead show i saw, went out on a good, indeed a hot night in the closing days of the band. Alas, a time when the old magic was becoming ever more elusive, for the first time in the nearly 30 years they had always been able to find that mind blowing mega hot groove around 20 % of the nights, solid shows another 40% ( decent show nights 20% , and sort of 'off nights' 20%)
Subject: First show
This was my very first Grateful Dead show, and indeed (aside from "Touch of Grey" on the radio), the first time I'd really heard the Dead. My sister and her boyfriend's family was going, and my brother and I convinced our Mom to let us tag along.
All I can say, is thanks Mom! I had no idea what to expect, and was totally blown away.
Glad to hear this copy, it brings back lots of memories.
Subject: Yes indeed
Yes, I agree, this was the best of the Autzen Stadium shows, and I was at all of them. So many blurred memories of this show, all of them good. this was also my first bootleg tape of a show, so it has double special meaning to me. enjoy!!
Subject: My 29th show, & one of the best!
This was at a time when my home was shifting from Oregon to Washington for school, and what a killer sendoff the Dead gave me! I'd been in OR since right before 7/19/87 and went to WA right after 8/22/93! Then they played Seattle the following summer? Who are the Grateful Dead and why do they keep following me?
Anyway, this show was amazing. It started off kinda rough, but polished up nice by the end of set 1 and became unbelievable through set 2. Maybe the best Help/Slip/Franklin's I ever saw, and the Drums/Space was out of control. Nobody wants to admit they like Corrina, but it's a killer boogey, I don't care what Deadheads say. A fun farewell to Oregon, definitely the best Autzen show I'd seen.

Subject: Excellent Late Period Shows
4 stars based on the quality of shows that began to come on the next few, final tours. This was a good west coast run and there was a special, very down to Earth an groovy vibe at Autzen.
The sound problems are not from the taping, but were something with the band, crew, and/or equipment. The sound was all f'd up for Jack Straw...Bobby was obviously pissed at whatever was going wrong and during Jerry's pretty scorching solo Bob actually walked offstage and was rasing hell. According to my buddy who was up front right on the stage Bobby destroyed his guitar he was so angry...but that is not confirmed. Anyways, they were having sound problems and you can hear that Bob is absent through Jerry's solo. Being there it seemed like Jerry was intentionally ripping w/o Bob on stage, but maybe I read too much into it at the time.
The first set was pretty nice. Jerry trying a redo opener with Bertha was a nice treat. The Broken Arrow was particularly sweet.
In the second set is arguably the best, tightest Help/Slip/Frank's of this time period. In fact, the entire 2nd set was NAILS. Rockin' "Sampson," a tasty treat with "Ship of Foools," and a particularly deep, thick, and haunting "Days Between"...a version that immediately made believers out of those who had not heard it yet...and the best of the few I ever saw.
Listened to this show based on a review by a guy on the other SBD indicating that Autzen Summer '93 was one of the better late runs.
Awesome energy...great mix (love the added crowd - my favorite boards have a bit of crowd in the background, which sets the mood just like you said Tano)...setlist is a great mix of classic and newer...the show is one of those that just has that Dead kinda flow to it.
Some excellent '93 IMO!
